The Lagonda SUV will share some of its platform elements with the upcoming Aston Martin DBX crossover, but will also debut a dedicated all-electric vehicle architecture that will be utilized in other Lagonda cars of the future.

The manufacturer will unveil the vehicle in 2021 after showing a radical concept of the all-but defunct Lagonda brand at the Geneva auto show in March.

The folks at Aston Martin's ultra-luxury division Lagonda have been busy lately. That utility will use gasoline-driven powertrains only.

Speaking of the V12, Palmer confirmed the company is planning to hybridize the engine in order to ensure it can meet emission standards in key markets such as the United States.

For starters, Pininfarina will be sourcing its all-electric power plant from Rimac, the same electric hypercar and component maker that also supplied electric to Aston Martin for their new hypercar, the Valkyrie.

Speculation suggests that the Lagonda could be built alongside the Aston Martin DBX SUV at the brand's new plant in St Athan, south Wales.

Launching the SUV first makes sense as the vehicle can borrow elements from Aston Martin's own SUV, rumored to be called a Varekai, which is due in 2019.

A Lagonda for the future sounds good.

Regardless, Aston Martin chief executive Andy Palmer said reviving the Lagonda name represented a unique opportunity. The car's look will "serve as pathfinder to a future in which the most desirable and prestigious automobiles still have a place".

"The Lagonda SUV is the first of its kind: a spacious, high-performance 4x4 that successfully reconciles a love of technology, luxury and style". That was previewed by a Lagonda Vision Concept saloon at this year's Geneva motor show. In a new teaser image, we can see an SUV with a low-slung roof and a rear that comes to a point, two design features reminiscent of the concept.
